Large central cinema as I recall – saw many films in my youth ( 1970s ) and enjoyed its later incarnation as a nightclub ( Busby’s ) . Always enjoyed the junction between the local Bristolian accent and the term “Gaumont” which always sounded quite odd. Most recent use was as “The Sports Cafe” a sports themed huge bar hoping to catch in on the late 1990s sports craze , but that chain disappeared as quickly as it arrived .

The former Gaumont is now closed and advertised “for sale” as a “redevelopment opportunity”

Anyone know the screen dimensions for this cinema? I remember the screen as being huge, but then, I was much smaller when I used to go there as a kid. I was wondering how it compared to today’s multiplexes.
